hagel was nominated to be secretary of defense, i strongly objected based on his record as a senator and some of his comments about our allies in the middle east that absolutely scared the living day lights out of me. my fears, they were not unfounded. as this week hagel proudly announced his proposal to further gut the military readiness of our nation by drausic troop reductions and cuts to our families and family health care. for the past 100 years presidents and our nation's warriors have warned of putting our guard down. both democrat and republican presents from coolidge to roosevelt to eisenhower to reagan reminded us that readiness to fight is the foundation of freedom. the best minds in our nation's history warned of lulling ourselves into the stupid stupor of thinking that the world would be safer and more peaceful if we just holstered our guns and swords. it's folly to think such nonsense. the best way to preserve freedom, keep the peace and protect security is to have a military that's so overwhelmingly powerful that no one on earth would want to poke it into action. frank
's been a meeting of defense ministers. obviously ukraine right on the borders of nato, on the borders of poland is a core challenge and worry for nato security. >> that concludes the public parts of our meeting. and i thank the media for their attendance. >> that's all we're going to see. we unfortunately arrived a bit late. normally these sessions happen behind closed doors. that was a very public piece of the meeting of defense ministers in brussels. we were talking about what's happening in bangkok. she's been indicted for alleged criminality in a rice scheme. >> reporter: this is the first time we have seen the prime minister's own supporters, and she has huge numbers of them outside bangkok, to carry out the same tactic being used by the anti-government movement. that movement has block aided ministries in central bangkok. they are using the same tactic against the building behind me, the anti-corruption commission. they sealed off the gate. they're taking a break. they are waiting for three cement trucks. they are going to solidly cement the gate. they argue, as does the prime m

. now we have heard the defense accusing the police of contaminating the crime scene so far this morning. and we have heard one prosecution witness already in the first couple of hours of this trial. the prosecution have called witness number 80. michel berger heard blood occurred elling screams she said in the early hours of valentine's day 2013. she was questioned just before the court broke for lunch. this report on the day's events so far. >> reporter: oscar pistorius is escorted into the high court in the heart of pretoria for one of the most high-profile trials to ever take place in this country. hundreds turned out in the drizzle to see the arrival of the double amputee who rose to become a sporting hero and celebrity. there's an encampment of television crews from south africa and around the world. even a television drone made an appearance. relatives of both oscar pistorius and his girlfriend reeva steenkamp present. at the start of the trial, he was asked to plead to the central charge of murder as well as firearms charges related to separate occasions. >> did you understand th
testimony taken apart, picked apart, with a very passionate prosecution from the pistorius defense team. a lot happening on day one, and this is what it's going to be like for the next few weeks, the next few months, sort of a roller coaster ride. >> before i let you go, it's been the reaction of south frick to this trial, does it really come down to whether oscar pistorius was wearing his prosthetic legs or not? >> no, i don't think it does come down to that, i think it's a lot more than that. you know, the ballistics will determine whether or not he had his prosthetic legs on. but i think what it really boils down to. this is about one judge. a very respected, experienced judge. listening to legal arguments, procedural arguments. about mistaken identity, about self-defense, murder, premeditated murder. self-defense again and again, and i think that's what's going to determine, what south african's think, what the police think or oscar's defense think, it all boils down to the judge. it's all about law in the end. >> thank you very much indeed. i want to bring in a man who's known osca
, including defense exports. we had a very good progress with the order which will secure and shape our jobs in his constituency. and, frankly, i was criticized by the party opposite for taking defense contractors on trade missions overseas. they don't think it's appropriate i think it is appropriate. i think we should be standing up for defense industry and defensive jobs. >> will the prime minister ended speculation over the future of the hunting act by confirming that he doesn't intend to use a statutory to repay or remember the act live removing the limits on the number of dogs that can be used? >> well, this will quite probably be a matter for the house of commons, as he will know what has happened is a group of welsh and other members of parliament have looked at a particular problem of pest control in upland areas of whales and other parts of the country. they are making a proposal. the proposal will be properly examined by the department and and and the house of commons will be able to decide. >> thank you, mr. speaker. further to my honorable friend's question and during national ap
the threat or use of force. and that none of their weapons will ever be used against ukraine except in self-defense or otherwise in accordance with the charter of the united nations. that clearly hasn't happened now, even though putin claims he's potential acting to protect the russian populace. >> no, it hasn't, but then again, you know, seen from not just russia, but many ukrainance as well, what happened was not like what happened in egypt with the overthrow of commune im. yanukovych was a repulsive ruler in many ways, but he wasn't elected. a large part of the ukrainian parliament is being chased out of kiev, you know, the representatives of the east and south, the parties which supported yanukovych. so it is highly questionable whether this government in kiev does have any degree of democratic legitimately. that's why, quite rightly, the west has gotten a promise of new elections in may, but of course the question is how one can hold free and fair elections with nationalist militia in control of with you pant of the country and russian soldiers in control of another. >> finally, the west is cl

views as a criminal defense lawyer. a comprehensive revision of the federal criminal code should focus on five main points. reducing the number of federal crimes, ensuring that the revised code strikes a proper balance between federal and state law enforcement, clearly defining the appropriate levels of mens rea, establishing uniform rules of construction, and revising the overly harsh punishment system. i'll take those in turn. fir, reducing the number of federal offenses. the list of federal crimes has grown from handful in the crimes act of 1790, to thousands today. this has occurred in part because the country has become more complex and also occurs because everytime there's a national crisis the reaction is to enact new federal crimes. the result is a morass of overlapping statutes. the more than two dozen different -- chapter 47. seven different fraud statutes in chapter 63 and i count 19 different obstruction offenses in chapter 73 of title 18. this proliferation of federal offenses has too main practical consequences from my perspective. first of all the sheer number of crimes

with a nationwide biofuel industry. we have contracts today under the defense production act that by 2016 with four biofuel companies assuming all of them make it through this process, they are contracted to provide us with about 163 million gallons a kwraoeryear at a good bit less than $4 a gallon, which is very competitive with oil and gas and domestically produced. all four have different feed stocks. i don't really care where it comes from. but it has budget advantages not the least of which gives our partners a new income stream for a short basis. it is any kind of technology from solar to wind geothermal hydrothermal, fuel cells that can use different kinds of fuel to power them. so our goal -- and i'm confident we are going to reach it -- is by 2020 at least half of all naval energy will come from non-fossil fuel sources. we have six years to do that. i think we are on track to get there. >> secretary again we are ahead of the budget but secretary hagel did release earlier this week out lineslines, some controversy about cost reductions -- not cost reductions
. they are going around with the self defense unit, and then you have throughout the day groups of people who are protesting, waving the russian flag, and they will protect russian interests wherever they are in the world. parallel to that you have the politics going on. the regional prime minister started the day saying they have taken temporary control of the military, the navy and police and also called on those commanders who did not want to follow his order to just leave their positions, and then he said that he announced that the referendum that was initially set for may 25th which was the same day as the national presidential election is now brought forward to march 30th. now in that referendum he will ask the people of crimea whether they want more autonomy from kiev. one might wonder what more they want. what they do want they do have autonomy in the budget, how to spend it. they have autonomy in matters of education, health, agriculture. but what seems to be happening at the moment that he's going to be asking whether they want to take orders from kiev any more, he'll ask people if

attorney generals they don't have to defend laws they don't feel are defensible. what is going going to do about it? what is anyone going to do about it? >> that's the most common question my colleagues and i in the senate again. why can't you stop president obama? the truth is, we will stop him through litigation, through appropriations process when we regain the majority of the united states senate in november. obamacare is a disaster. the president's credibility is at an all-time low. and it's going to drag down his party. but unfortunately, when a president ignores his oath to uphold and defend the constitution and laws of the united states and chooses rather to cherry pick which laws to enforce examine which ones to wave or postpone, you have an unprecedented lawless situation that i know troubles a lot of people deeply, including me. >> okay. this week the president is due to release his budget. do you think there will be some common ground, the some areas that democrats, republicans, folks on the hill, folks in the white house can work together to improve the bottom loin when it com
